I am have a gluten intolerance. A lot of people do, just don't know it.
I try to be Gluten Free, well limit the households Gluten but this is a challenge to me. I am not going to lie and say I have been Gluten Free - I HAVE NOT. I know, I need to be and I am working on it. I love bread. I really do... Fresh warm delicious bread or how about cookies!!!!!
I am really going to do this! I am going to research and get cookbooks and read books and I am going to do this.
Dinner is easy to be Gluten Free. I just need to work on breakfast and lunch. I will do this!!!! I am open to Gluten Free recipes!!! Maybe, even a Gluten Free bread recipe! :)
To get me going on this quest, I made these delicious cookies... These are great! Full of FLAVOR!!! These are rough measurements... I am terrible about EXACT measurements! I get too excited! :)
Almost Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1/2 cup pitted dates that you chop into chunks
3/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup macadamia nuts
1/2 cup shredded unsweetened coconut
1 teaspoon coconut oil (you can use butter but coconut oil is better!)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
Put nuts, dates, coconut, oil, and cinnamon in the food processor with the S blade on it. Pulse until nuts and dates are broken down and it resembles loose crumbs.
Pour into mixing bowl and add in egg and raisins. Use your hands to mix together.
Use an ice cream scoop to get uniformly sized cookies. Form into patties like you would burger meat. You should be able to make about 6-8 cookies.
Put on ungreased baking sheet into an oven that you have heated to 350. Space evenly on the cookie sheet.
Bake for about 25 minutes. You will know they are done when they look golden brown and delicious.
Cool on a wire rack and enjoy!
